The Taylor 114ce Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar delivers Taylor quality at a working musician's price!

The Taylor 114ce is part of the redesigned 100 series of acoustic guitars. The Taylor 114ce Acoustic Guitar boasts a bookmatched Sitka Spruce soundboard with Taylor’s "X" bracing. The Taylor 114ce also features their Grand Auditorium body style, which is a slightly smaller body that is similar to the classic dreadnought shape of the 110 model, yet delivers that characteristic big dreadnought tone. While the bigger Dreadnought was traditionally considered a flatpicker’s guitar and the smaller Grand Concert catered to fingerstylists, the Grand Auditorium was designed to deliver on both fronts. If you want a great all-purpose guitar, the multi-dimensional Grand Auditorium won't let you down.

The Taylor 114ce Acoustic Guitar boasts a bookmatched Sitka Spruce soundboard with Taylor's "X" bracing. Sitka Spruce grows in a coastal "pocket" from Northern California to Alaska. This dense, straight-grained wood has the highest strength and elasticity-to-weight ratio among available tonewoods, an attribute that makes it an ideal material not only for soundboards, but for internal bracing, as well. The back and sides are crafted from layered sapele which presents a beautiful aesthetic in a durable, affordable package.

The cutaway body design of the Taylor 114ce allows you to access the upper register notes for when you're reaching for a little extra in your soloing. You will love the ease and playability of the fast, thin profile of the sapele neck and 20 fret ebony fingerboard.

When it’s time to plug in and hit the stage, the Taylor 114ce features the Expression System Transducer, or ES-T, is a single-source, under-saddle transducer with individual elements for each string. The ES-T has an onboard preamp and features a custom-voiced EQ with a simplified volume, bass, and treble control layout. The system is powered by a 9-volt battery, with a battery life LED power indicator. The pickup also has a Phase switch for feedback control, which is located on the preamp board inside the soundhole. The Taylor 114ce is equally at home on stage, in studio, or the front porch. A Deluxe Taylor Gig Bag is included.

  • Cutaway Grand Auditorium body style

Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been playing this model for a few months, but it only took a couple minutes to appreciate all the great features. The factory setup was superb, the preamp is hot and transparent, and the cutaway makes it easy to "shred" in the upper register. Plus the stunning good looks made it love at first sight.

    Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    If you haven't heard of Taylor, then you must have glossed over the guitar as an instrument. Taylor is established as one of the leaders in guitar quality and to have one at an affordable price is worth picking one up. The cutaway also allows for access to higher frets that traditional dreadnought bodies don't allow. You have an excellent guitar with big warm sounds and the comfort of reaching those higher notes. Stays in tune!

      Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      One of the best playing guitars that you can get in this price range. Sounds crisp, clear, rich and full. The neck is comfortable to play and the consistency of playability is incredible. Pick up just about any 114ce out of the box, and it is ready to play. Solid top sounds better and better with playing and with age. Comes with a nice bag too. Great investment for a lower price range Taylor.

      Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This guitar really gives you want you want. The neck has a great feel being satin and the girth is comfortable. The tone is amazing for having laminate back and sides. The gig bag you get really makes it a complete package. Im really impressed by Taylor and their ability to make an amazing guitar for this price.

        Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Being mostly an electric guitar player, I love the way Taylor guitars feel. They have a slimmer neck, which makes the transition from acoustic to electric very easy. The cutaway on this guitar also makes that transition easier. I work for Sam Ash Music in Columbus, OH and recommend this guitar to customers regularly because I know I can stand behind Taylor as a company. They build great instruments.

        Great entry Taylor acoustic

        Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Taylor has always been one of the best acoustic guitar companies out there with each of its lines having somethig unique about it. The 114CE is a great for anyone looking for a quality guitar without breaking the bank. Solid Sitka top with Sapele back and sides. The best feature of the guitar is that it also has electronics so you can plug it into any amp or PA if you were to go out and play shows. You also have the added cutaway at the top of the guitar for those who also plan on playing on the higher frets of the guitar.

          The 114ce offers great features at an affordable price. They are setup great straight from the factory and have low, easy to play action. The grand auditorium body style is versatile for any style of playing and the cutaway makes it easier to access the higher frets. Taylor's electronics sound great and are easy to control. This is a great guitar for anyone looking for an affordable instrument for gigging, practice, songwriting or recording.

            I've owned this guitar for years, and I love it. Not only does the classic Taylor neck feel great, but the warm tone, the electronics, and the consistency of this guitar never gives out. It's well known in the singer/songwriter community for it's brilliance and rich tone. Whether your a first timer or advanced professional musician, this guitar has it all.

              Comments about Taylor 114ce Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              The new bracing in this series made ALL the difference! I love the tone of a Taylor, but had resigned myself to playing the more expensive ones, now I don't have to! With all the same playability as the big brothers, this guitar can hold its own! Now, the tone is just as rich and punchy as its more expensive counterparts.
